Conceptual problem with poker


Conceptually means that first place is punished and all other close finishers are rewarded. It is meant in terms of strategy. It means that if the person is playing to win first place, because he think that he is the best poker player alive, then probably lose money in the long run. One might win lots of tournaments, but loose in the long run. In order to make the most profit along a many tournament stretch, one has to be conservative. One has to be inordinately selective about the hands to play on. One should not bet or rise with the same small edges of profit from in regular poker games. The way to make a profit in these tournaments is to survive in the game. Simply survive and there may be the opportunity to win. If in trying to survive, one accidentally wins first place, that is fine but mostly, one should not go out of the way to win the first-place trophy, because the winner of the tournament is penalized. Gambling and poker go hand in hand and are one and the same. Once addicted a person might lose his entire lives saving in winning this game.
